It has been talked about for years, but the Internet refrigerator is finally making its way to Australia. LG will launch the product here in November, along with a range of other Internet-enabled appliances such as washing machines, microwave ovens and air conditioners. The fridge will let users watch TV, download music files or photos, access e-mail, or even participate in videoconferences from their kitchen. It can also order food automatically from existing online shopping accounts. LG's philosophy behind the product is to educate consumers that the home of the future is just around the corner. The Internet fridge will retail for around $15,000, although exact pricing has yet to be announced.www.lge.com.au.
